Well I have a choice between two new mods, what ever I buy now the next one will be what was not chosen. There are two pics to help with the decision.

Now, I have an idea of where the pole is gonna point but damned if i cant make up my mind.

Here is what I see, the car is pretty fast as is (I have lost only a few races and those were to cars way out of my league) but I am really dieing to get my hands on the Steeda intake. Not only for power but to make the engine bay a little more attractive to the passer buy when they want to see under my hood.



BUT

I want to get lower as well, now I will be buying the Eibach prokit springs and so far Eibach shows no future R&D for dampers. Now that leaves me with just springs until KYB AGX's for the 06 come out to play then I will be buying those.



So the springs will do wonders for the cars appearance and handling, and the intake will make me go faster and make the engine bay look a lot better.

So I am stuck.

See I am not worried about the speed in this car b/c so far when I have raced anyone its either a complete shutdown for them or I get my ass royally handed to me. I love taking the corners, in fact my friends say I am F-ed up b/c I m the only person they know who slow down on streights and speed up on corners. LOL The problem with that is the after I buy the springs, later down the road the shocks will have to be bought and have to be installed.

Go for the springs! Love cornering and make you not to go faster but to get advantage of the opponent.

I would do springs because you shouldn't have to worry about the dampers on the car as Eibach told me when I bought mine that they are made to work with the stock dampers. I am sure they didn't know that the ST came exclusively with the SVT dampers and the other models came with normal ones. So I would say DROP IT!!!

Thanks everyone, so far this poll is going in the complete opposite direction I figured, I thought everyone would be saying springs. LOL

A new option opend up as far as power goes, I already have a SCT Flasher from my last car (I just forgot) and I can get that retuned to my car for about 100 so now its cheaper for the performance. if i can just find a place to order some springs so I can get an accurate price I would be set.

I say intake, but CAI [thumb].

If you get the springs, get dampers too. Way better in the long run...lol

CAI=[nono]

If I cant slap a BPV on it, its not happening. Alabama has some freak ass rain storms and while trying to get somewhere safely the last thing I need to think about is my car.
